    I worked at Tony Roma's part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I was given a flexible schedule and the training was good. The other employees were usually pretty helpful and the upper level management was around more than I would have expected.

    Cons

    Servers had to do work that often took away from the guests' experience (like prepping our own salads and desserts to order). Quite often, I had to work split shifts and lived to far away to go home or to do anything in between.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The employee discount program is almost useless to be honest.

    I have been working at Tony Roma's part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The use of Hot Schedules is always convenient for requesting time off. Not as uptight as other corporate restaurants.

    Cons

    Morale is extremely low amongst staff. All floor managers are inexperienced. There is no structured training program resulting in incompetent employees. Large gap in skill levels among serving staff and bartenders. Poorly managed FOH.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a new Director of Operations. Update and refine current hiring process. Develop a better training program for new managers.

    Pros

    We made some great food, good hours and decent pay. There was room for advancement plus locations around the world.

    Cons

    I worked at a franchise store as opposed to a corporate store so things were a lot different than they would have been in a corporate store.

    Pros

    Tony Roma's is a long-time, well-established restaurant chain. Franchise stores are allowed some leeway when it comes to menu options.

    Franchise stores do not follow corporate guidelines when it comes to compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Franchise owners should be held to follow the same salary & benefits package as corporate.
